Dual Surprise, St. Luke's Employee of the Month

by -

Employee of the month - Kathryn Parvu

UnityPoint Health – St. Luke’s Employee of the Month for June is Kathryn Parvu, a housekeeper at the St. Luke’s Sunnybrook Medical Plaza. Parvu is best known for her attention to detail, sense of humor, friendly smile, can-do attitude and continuous generosity. And now, after the St. Luke’s Employee of the Month ceremony, Parvu is also known for her newfound ability to reverse a surprise.

To present Parvu with the Employee of the Month award, members of the St. Luke’s family gathered for a surprise ceremony. However, Parvu wasn’t the only one who was surprised. Parvu stunned everyone with her freshly shaved head – a haircut she gave herself that weekend to surprise and support her sister who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer.

“She left us all speechless,” says her supervisor, Garth Servis. “Once she shared the reason behind it, we were like, yep, that’s Kathryn! She’s the type of person that would do anything to make others more comfortable.”

As the St. Luke’s Employee of the Month for June, Parvu received a special watch from Greenberg’s Jewelers, her own premium parking space, gift cards to the St. Luke’s Glass Apple Gift Shop, The Parkview Café and a gift certificate to be used at an area restaurant. She will also have the chance to be voted as St. Luke’s Employee of the Year for 2017. That comes with a paid vacation.
